Casing SusieB!

I got a VERY pleasant surprise in my Inbox yesterday – it was an email from THE Sue Nelson – SusieB on SplitCoastStampers! Talk about making my week – or should I say month or year! I LOVE her gallery and she has been my inspiration for so many cards. She has totally influenced my cards since I first set eyes on her gallery about a year and a half ago. You can check out her SCS gallery here, or her website gallery here. You will be amazed!

Well, I already had a recent card of hers in my Favorites (on SCS) so I decided it was time for me to case it.
Here is the card I cased. The matting is Stampin’ Up!’s So Saffron cardstock. The circles are embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The daisies are stickers from Martha Stewart. (I had read that some people had gotten Martha Stewart things at Big Lots, and we came across a Big Lots on vacation last week, so I had to stop.) The Happy Birthday stamp is from a dollar set from JoAnn's in a set from Dimensions. The fence is punched with a Martha Stewart punch and backed it with Old Olive cardstock from Stampin’ Up! I used my Scor-Pal for the lines beside the ribbon and my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder for the bottom. The ribbon is Mellow Moss from SU! That’s it!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

I've been looking for more creative ways to use the picket fence punch --- I just love it! This card is perfect in every way! I'll be casing this, too!!

Oh my! This is fabulous!!! I love Sue Nelson designs, and you've cased this wonderfully! That picket fence against that green and those crisp white swiss dots...Wow! Great job!!!

I have been eyeing that punch and this card makes the decision very easy now. I have taken a cuttlebug class with Sue where she works. What a great lady and sooo creative.

Hey Lynette!

Your adorable comments about my work brought a big smile to my old, wrinkled face this morning! AND the CARD!! WOW WEE! I will be casing your casings!

So beautiful, so clean, so perfect!
I will be checking back often to see new additions, since I seem to be missing them on the fast-moving SCS Gallery!
